At present, the documentation of gcd reads "If more than one argument is given
then all arguments must be the same size or scalar." However, the function
definition given in the help text defines only the multi-element syntax, which
is borne out by trying 


which returns

error: Invalid call to gcd.  Correct usage is:

 -- G = gcd (A1, A2, ...)
 -- [G, V1, ...] = gcd (A1, A2, ...)

So please just change the sentence referenced above to "All arguments must be
the same size or scalar."
